Wiki-who-now?

Wikipedia co-founder launches rival online encyclopedia (via CBC)

"Larry Sanger's Citizendium aims to weed out biased or incorrect information and obscenities by creating user registration and editorial controls, in contrast to the more open submission process at Wikipedia, where Sanger once worked as editor-in-chief. Citizendium will be an invitation-only site for experts in their field."

Time will tell.

Good Luck, Larry.
There is a version of the Citizendium: they call it the Encyclopedia Britianica. Also, experts are professionals. They get paid. If he doesn't ante up cash, he is S-O-L. Lastly, experts can be wrong.
